Marco Council June 1, 2009

Marco Island police Captain Dave Baer and officer Paul Keys presented information on the new mobile equipment in officers' police cars. The mobile offices make a police cruiser a bit cramped, but give much-needed tools, Keys said at Monday's council meeting. The cars now include cellphone, cameras, magnetic license reader, cup holder, a VHF radio, a 800 MHZ radio and a printer-- in addition to laptops.
